"So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of the month Elul,

in fifty-two days. 16 When all our enemies heard of it,

and all the nations surrounding us saw it,

they lost their confidence; for they recognized that

this work had been accomplished with the help of our God."

for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
